New York City (May 4, 2017) Getting ready for a long jaunt across the Pacific to join the McGee Eye Institute's Global Eye Care team there. They left Oklahoma City yesterday morning, through San Francisco and then straight into Chengdu. I fly from NY to Shanghai and after a short lay-over, on to Chengdu arriving just after midnight tomorrow (local time). Interesting to be here at JFK today...just happens that POTUS is scheduled to breeze into the Big Apple a couple of hours before I take off. Rumor has it they shut down the whole airport...so we'll see how "timely" we are. Flying China Easter airlines and they let us into the Air France lounge here - nice snacks!
